"the journal" says the fbi's investigation began in may when it started looking into e-mails described as threatening sent to a woman cnn has identified as jill kelley, a family friend of petraeus'. the fbi traced the e-mails back to paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. and by late summer, "the wall street journal" report, the bureau linked broadwell to petraeus. that's when "the journal" says top officials informed eric holder of the situation. >> once the white house, once some staffer knows, various people find out about something, it becomes public almost instantly. you see this all the time. >> reporter: cnn contributor tom fuentes says under its protocols the fbi and justice department should have kept it inside their circles, unless there was evidence of a breach of
brought this to light. >> we now know from a u.s. official that it was a complaint from paula broadwell was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to the cia director that prompted the fbi to investigate. also we know that the investigation led to the discovery of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that indicated the affair. now, that second woman hasn't been identified, and the official we spoke with didn't know the nature of that woman's relationship with the former director. but more details are. going out about the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. a senior u.s. intelligence official tells the cnn that the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night, just as some polls were beginning to close and director clapper as a friending colleague, fellow officer, and admirer, urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house on wednesday and then,

to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary of state, the state's current top elections official, i think nobody had very high expectations for him in terms of how well he would do running elections in the state of arizona. and indeed, the arizona elections this year went horribly. and it took them 14 days to even come up with the results. but they do h

. the u.s. senate today confirmed judge sonia sotomayor. only the third female justice in all of u.s. history. >> history was made when elena kagan was sworn in. she will be the court's third woman member. >> president obama is signing the start treaty, one of his key foreign policy goals that cuts arsenals by one-third. more than nine years after the september 11th attacks, first responders who were sickened at ground zero will have federal health benefits. president obama signed the bill on sunday. >> today the president also put pen to paper, signing the repeal of the ban on gays in the military. >> your country needs you, your country wants you, and we will be honored to welcome you into the finest ranks the world has ever known. >> don't ask don't tell, that had been blocked in washington for too long, a e treaty with russia, two women appointed to the supreme court including the first hispanic supreme court justice in this nation's history. all of that was all accomplished in the first two years of his presidency. and then came the 2010 midterms and the house went to the republ
this unraveled. and it all has to do with tampa where, of course, u.s. central command is located and jill kelley, whom you just saw there, she was involved as a volunteer. she's no diplomatic protection whatsoever, but she was involved as a volunteer dealing with international visitors in the military apparently. so she in this capacity gets to know general petraeus and also general allen. so he gets an e-mail, she gets e-mails. he warns her that he's getting these e-mails, this is jill kelley. and jill kelley goes to the fbi and that is how this all unravels. now, speaking of general allen, he, of course, is the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan. he was nominated as the supreme allied commander in europe. and that nomination is on hold. but secretary panetta said that they have confidence in him. let's listen to panetta. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isap and leading those forces. he has my continued conference to lead those forces and continue to fight. but his nomination has been put on
? >> not a single person said they would prefer to see him executed. in fact, the u.s. attorney got up and said that he heard from many of these victims and their families who said they all -- all of the folks he said he heard from were happy or satisfied i should say, i don't want to use the term happy, but satisfied with the sentence of life without the possibility of parole. we do have just a few moments ago congressman ron barber, who worked in gabby giffords' office and succeeded her in office to fulfill the remaining part of her term came out and spoke. here's what he said he said to mr. loughner in court. >> i turned to mr. loughner and said "i hold you -- hold no hatred for you, but i'm very, very angry and sick at heart about what you did and the hurt you have imposed on all of us." i told him he must now live with this burden and he'll never see outside of a prison again. >> reporter: politics not far away from this tragedy, wolf. congressman barber running for re-election in the vote that just concluded, they're still counting the votes here in arizona to see if he's going to retain
the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night. just as some polls were beginning to close. that director clapper as a friend, colleague, fellow officer and admirer urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house about the investigation on wednesday and then on thursday the director and -- the questions now, of course, will focus on this second woman. who was she? what was the nature of her relationship with petraeus, and what more do officials know about the nature of those emails between broadwell and this other woman? maybe some of those questions will be answered as the oversight committees now begin to pose questions of their own over this investigation and why they weren't informed of it until just hours before director petraeus sent notice of his resignation andle reason behind it. >>> general petraeus was or
years in the u.s. economy, we have added more than 5 million jobs in the private sector. so it's been growing at around 2 million a year. under the romney call, what he's calling for to get 12 million, that would have to go up to 3 million a year from 2 million. a lot of people think that regardless of what happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, cer
the white house. we know democrats keeping control of the u.s. senate. republicans keeping control of the house. but we're adding an independent to the senate, senator-elect angus king of maine. he's being a tad coy today, not revealing which way his political affections may bend. everyone in the senate wants to know will king caucus with the democrats or the republicans. he rallied his opponents, democrat and republican last night, and will replace retiring republican senator, veteran senator olympia snowe. here is part of his victory speech. >> people don't care who gets the credit. they don't care who is winning and losing from year to year. and they're tired of the false choice that always seems to confront them. as a guy said to me early on this campaign, i've always wanted the chance to vote for none of the above. and you're it. >> senator-elect king joins me on the phone from brunswick, maine. congratulations, sir. senator-elect. you like how that sounds? >> thank you, yes. sounds pretty good. but i'll go by angus for now. >> okay. angus king, let me ask you this, everyone w
and he was forced to resign as the cia director. well, now the general john allen, who is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, is being investigated for trading alleged quote flirtatious e-mails with ms. kelley over the last couple of years. we're hearing from ms. kelley for the first time in a 911 call to t don't know if by any chance, because i'm an honorary consul general, so i have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. but now it's against the law to cross my property since this is now like, you know, it's inviolable. >> all right. no problem. i'll let the officers know. >> thank you. >> meantime, the senate intelligence committee wants to be briefed both by petraeus and his replacement, michael morrell. cnn's jill dougherty is at the state department digging into some of this really confusing web i think it's fair to say. good morning to you, jill. >> hey, soledad. you know, let's begin with that honorary consul general. in tampa, apparently, from what we can understand, jill kelle

first press conference, being row elected, president obama has strong words for anyone who blames u.s. -- united nations ambassador susan rice for the benghazi response. here is what the president said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> okay. so it took senator john mccain about an hour to make it to the s senate floor to offer a response. >> that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> seems like the testosterone-fueled rhetoric over benghazi is sort of getting out of control. former cia operative bob behr joins us this morning. good morning, bob. >> good morning. >> i want to make it clear to our viewers what lawmakers want to figure out. there are three separate hearings about to take place today. this is what they're trying t

. the u.s. congressional delegation and the state house assembly. so the fact is republicans control the government at all levels by big numbers. and i think that this election is going to be much more like 2010 than 2008. i think governor romney's going to carry pennsylvania. >> ron brownstein you agree with that? >> the big question is as you come down to the very end, where republicans are viewing this, is this electorate going to be like the electorate in 2010. racial distribution, partisan distribution, in it's ideological distribution? 2010 was more white, more republican and more conservative. southwest pennsylvania is going to be very tough for president obama. the white working-class voters there are going to move sharply away from him. but what pat toomey did in 2010 was cut the margin in the poor suburban counties outside of philadelphia to only 20,000 vote deficit. in 2008 barack obama won those same counties by 200,000 votes. the question is whether the social issues that are partient in for romney with white collar, white voters, particularly women are going to be a bar

. but the truth is the u.s.a. is a rapidly changing country. and the republic party has to rethink strategy. in hindsight, senator marco rubio would have been the best choice to run with mitt romney. it's not a knock on congressman paul ryan he did very well. it's just that the g.o.p. knees to send a powerful signal to g.o.p. voters that respect them. they cast approximately 11 million ballots yesterday. obama beat romney by less than 3 million in the popular vote. the good news for the republics is that the pressure is now on president obama and the democrats. if the economy doesn't improve dramatically over the next four years, the democratic party will evaporate. simple as that what is more complicated is the mind set of the american people. as i reported last night during the election coverage about half of all american homes are now receiving some kind of government entitlement. some earned, some not. so any effort to reform or cut back on entitlements is a tough sell. but it's going to have to be done. president obama won because he effectively put together a coalition of the willing.
. and you have a democratic u.s. senator against a former republican governor. how do you reconcile those? >> it's odd. but it's a mid-western thing and specific to wisconsin, as you upon, in the sense that people are independent. they like to vote the person of they very much vote the person over the party. they. reformers. for whatever reason, they thought the federal elections, at least staid -- statewide, the democrats got their attention. even the federal office at the -- excuse me, the local level, we had two congressional seat, two people who won two years ago in one case in a seat that was held by dave olbee since 1969, everybody thought tows were -- those were seats that nancy pelosi was targeting and they both won by solid majorities, a very independent streak in wisconsin and one to continue to stay on top, as republicans, we will have to be strong reformers. >> greta: to add to the unusual nature of it, congressman paul ryan was re-elected to his congressional seat by 10 or 11 points, sizable majority in a very democratic district he's in. that's unusual that a republican woul
consulate was under attack with a missing u.s. ambassador. that's a question that needs to be answered. why wasn't those officials looking at that video when it was spontaneously available. >> sean: one of the things i learned in this, congressman king, i went through the department of defense and their timeline. this started on september 11, 3:42 eastern time. by 5:00, secretary panetta and general dempsey attended a previously scheduled meeting with the president at the white house approximate the d.o.d. is saying that the leaders discussed potential responses to the emerging situation. we have not known what the president knew, when he knew it about all of this. did you get any clar identification on the timeline in regards to this today? >> no, i think joe would agree with me. they had no answers to what the president was doing, what the secretary of defense was doing. they weren't there with them. it was a very disappointing in that regard. again, also, going back to one thing you said about who briefed susan rice, they didn't know. they didn't know who gave her the talking points and
